Netflix’s “Stranger Things” Season 3 Will Premiere with a Bang This Year

The holiday season might be behind us, but fans holding their breath for the next visit to the Upside Down have just been given a gift with the announcement of Netflix’s Stranger Things season 3 premiere date! The Fourth of July will bring more than just barbecues and fireworks this year. It will also kick off a summer of Stranger Things with the highly anticipated premiere of season 3.

The entire eight-episode season will be released on Jul. 4, which means after the fireworks have faded and you’ve tucked the kids into bed, it’ll be time for a marathon Netflix sesh just for mom and dad. Stranger Things‘ official Instagram dropped this amazing season 3 poster on New Year’s Eve:

But an even cooler tease was this eerie promo video, which also dropped on New Year’s Eve. Featuring the 1985 broadcast of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, the video is disrupted by green code and the screen turning itself upside down as fireworks explode.

“One summer can change everything,” the screen reads. “July 4, 2019.” And cue chills:

As fans learned last year in an amazing Stranger Things teaser video, the new season will take place over the summer of 1985. The show will center around events happening at the Hawkins Starcourt Mall, where Steve seems to have picked up his first after-school gig in the mall food court.

We know the New Year just got here, but is it summer yet?
